As calls for a renewal for ONE DAY AT A TIME grew into an online campaign in recent weeks, Netflix has finally given the greenlight and ordered a season three of the critically acclaimed sitcom. The series is a remake of the Norman Lear sitcom and centers on a Cuban-American family. The cast includes Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, and Todd Grinnell.
The National Hispanic Media Coalition issued an open letter to Netflix imploring the network to renew the series. They called the show “a guiding light – grappling with issues of diversity, equity, and inclusivity.”
The show has a vocal and dedicated audience as well as great critical acclaim. It won the NHMC Impact Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and was nominated for an Emmy for Editing, a Critics Choice Television Award for Rita Moreno, and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.
Lear and co-creators Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce executive produce the series with Michael Garcia and Brent Miller.
